about in marriage law and a lawsuit in another state, we hear this issue about religion. i may be overreacting a little bit, and if so, thank you for calling in. host: ron has this tweet. let me follow up on the point that many religions still don't identify same-sex marriage as a marriage. guest: many don't, and yet, many do. if you read the papers and follow the news, many people in states that do not legally recognized marriage, many churches perform ceremonies and go through ceremonies in their faith communities. a broad range of faith. it is wrong to think that religion is in one place on this. religion is all over the map on this. even within religions, there are enormous debates within a variety of sects of how to deal with same-sex couples, gay or lesbian clergy. this is a debate that is going to be going on for quite awhile but i think that the movement of history is on the side i am one. host: let me go back to one of the earlier caller is discussing adoption and the restrictions put in place. of course we know what has happened in russia, where they say no to various

, we are moving in our country to maybe a state religion which says anybody who is -- who leaves homo ickes allity is biblically untrue is a pariah and fall back to the neanderthal days and we're forcing a religious belief on the catholics and muslims and all these religious groups who happen to believe that homosexuality is inappropriate. you should be able to believe what you want to believe but i don't think the government should force a religion on to a nation of people where we have so held, cling to our idea of religious freedom. someone told me -- this is a high level person, heads up a think texas -- that george southerlies funded an organization that is going into churches to tape sermons for the fact that going forward -- i believe section 501(c)(3) but the bob jones university lost its tax exemption because they had a policy against interracial marriage, and that was against public policy. so what this section of the irs says, 501, if you are against public policy, your tax exemption will be gone. so the belief is that -- that's may sound con pierer toal -- they want to get

. the founding fathers talked about hearing of the majority and they were concerned about the freedom of religion, but they also realized there were 51% of the people that realized they could benefit from the 49%. pretty soon the party is over. they will send 50% and the 40% and finally if of 30% correct. just like the call is a philosophical so was the cure. the cure is expressed by thomas jefferson and the declaration of independence. life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. the individuals have a moral right to their own life to each individual's right to pursue their happiness. each individual's right to the product of their labor. if you produce a lot, you get a lot including the right to give it anything you want to on whatever terms you want to. if you think about that prerogative, it demands personal responsibility because there is no free lunch. it demands and rewards rationality. it demands and rewards self discipline to the life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. let's talk about liberty for just a minute. you know, a lot of defenders and liberty think of liberty as a nice thing
together among clergy of all types and sex and religion in addition the united states to support this. this is an uphill climb. it is a different bill than i introduced. we go from two physical characteristics in the definition of an assault weapon to one. we ban 158 specific guns by make and model. we grandfather 2200 weapons by make and model that are rifles, shotguns, pistols used for recreation, defense, hunting. we ban clips, drums, or strips of more than 10 bullets. prohibit their manufacture, their sale, their transfer. we are different from the new york state law. we do not require registration of grandfathered weapons. and in that regard we are also different from the california law. in a sense, it's a little more moderate in that regard because the gun organizations regard registration as "the first step to confiscation." >> schieffer: when somebody sells one of these guns they may have now or gives it to someone else? >> we rerequire a full background check to the transferee, the person to whom the gun is transferred. >> schieffer: do you think the n.r.a. is now or less pow

going on where people who had taken on certain religions were not voting. i saw the felonies that people wanted to change in the community. as far as supporting him in those areas of his new agenda, you have to understand that he had four years to clean up america and he has done a wonderful job. he pulled together a campaign and put diversity all over. we have to stop looking at presidential issues and look at what is at hand. we need to stop hiding behind a wall and congress should helpless do that, not fair to the people, the children that were killed. who is going to work? who is going to take on the new america if there are no people to take it on? thank you for allowing me to have my opinion. i truly feel that american citizens that lived and died for us, thank you to them for allowing us to have this conversation. >> the eugene robinson -- host: the eugene robinson piece this morning, "no longer the black president."

's own body should be left up to that woman in consultation with her doctor, her family, and her religion, not the federal government. there's now a generation of women who do not remember the time before roe vs. wade. a time when men assumed they could say what women could and could not do about their personal private health care and reproduction. we still have a lot of work to do. unfortunately, over the past 40 years there have been numerous legislative attempts to deny this right to women and treat women who exercise control over their own bodies as criminals. we have to make sure that we defend also title 10, maternal and child health care programs, public access to reproductive health care, and that we re-authorize the violence against women act. but we must remember the time before roe vs. wade. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentlewoman from colorado seek recognition? if the gentlewoman from colorado is recognized for one minute. ms. degette: thank you, mr. speaker. yesterday in his inaugural address our president reminded us o
about their religion and their gods? we have they warfare going on around this country. we are talking about gun control. if i want to see somebody taken now, why do have to go inside a school? guest: i want to thank the caller for his service in vietnam. this is one of the big shifts in its war effort than i write about in my book. the major philosophy for insurgents was socialism, communism, often allied with nationalism. that change in 1979 we saw the rise of jihadism as the dominant force driving terrorism around the world. he saw that with the takeover of the embassy in iran. he saw that with the soviet invasion of afghanistan. you saw all those things coming together in a way that empowered jihadists. tendency to saya tennesse that they are fanatical. the history suggests otherwise. and proper strategy that we implemented in iraq which focused on security and tries to provide some of the legitimate needs of the people who want economic growth and jobs and freedom. a strategy like that can be successful. we saw that in the surge in iraq. do not lose heart. the reality is most insu

. king says, regardless of nationality, race or religion to admit our wrongs and turn from them. i believe that the denial of the right to life is the greatest injustice we face in the world today. there is no compassion in killing, she sails. there is no justice in writing people out of the human race. history, mr. speaker, will not look favorably on today's abortion culture. we must indeed and instead work tirelessly to replace it with a culture of life. i would like to now yield to my good friend and colleague, macha blackburn, for such time as she may consume. -- marsha blackburn, for such time as she may consume. mrs. blackburn: thank you, mr. speaker, and i thank the gentleman from new jersey for the excellent work that he continues to do year in and year out on this issue. i appreciate his leadership and we do stand today and mark the 40th anniversary of the tragic roe v. wade decision and it really is said that not all life is created equal. and since the supreme court gave our government's approval if you will of on-demand abortion, there have been over 55 million lives lo
